The Elizabeth Fry Society of Greater Vancouver (EFry) is a charitable organization that supports women, girls and children at risk, involved in or affected by the justice system. Our programs work to break the cycle of poverty, addiction, mental illness, homelessness and crime.
Operating throughout the Lower Mainland, this position assists low-income families to access federal and provincial education savings grants for children by opening no-fee and zero contribution Registered Educational Savings Plans (RESP). Their children are entitled to receive up to $3,200 to aid for their education after high school.
We seek someone to help and follow up with families taking practical steps towards saving for their children’s education. To do so requires applying for government benefits, filing their taxes, and potentially addressing related issues. This facilitator makes presentations on the program to inform individuals, and key stakeholders of this important benefit for children, the link to doing so with increased child graduation and later income, and the steps involved to open an RESP account through the financial institution of the client’s choice. This position involves community outreach, strategy building and various administrative functions to reach departmental goals.
